“This is an obscure but amazing ridge trail with views of Tunnel Ridge Road and the of Red River.”— Chris Chaney
Turn off of Tunnel Ridge Road North and follow the obvious trail along the top of the ridge. Take care in negotiating the rocky saddle and then enjoy easier hiking out the ridge, bearing right on the rounded knob for an open and exposed overlook.
The inspiring overlook is a rock climbing area known as Jailhouse Rock due to its proximity to Courthouse Rock across the valley.
Return via the same route. This trail can be combined with a loop of Auxier Ridge Trail #204, Auxier Branch Trail #203, Tunnel Ridge Road North, and a shot out the Star Gap Ridge for a nice long day of hiking.
